American Cancer Society’s ‘An Evening of Spirits’ Sets New 2021 Date

HOLYOKE — The American Cancer Society’s “An Evening of Spirits,” a night of local spirits and local food tastings, was originally set to take place in 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the fundraising event will now be held on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at Springfield City Library and Quadrangle.

Event partners include Berkshire Mountain Distillers, the Pace Family, Berkshire Brewing Co., Rise Event Productions, and Elegant Affairs.

The event, originally known as the Omar T. Pace Gala, became the Evening of Hope Gala and, over 25 years, has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support American Cancer Society services in Western Mass. and beyond. The American Cancer Society is excited to begin a new, distinguished event tradition, rising from the legacy of the work done by gala supporters.
